JIGDOLL – HANNAH JAMES

Jigdoll

FRIDAY 11TH MAY 2018

at 7.30pm (doors open 7pm)

Jig Doll combines all of these disciplines in a beautiful new show exploring the life of the travelling player: sometimes exotic, sometimes frightening, it’s a world where home changes daily, and the only touchstones are the skills you carry with you, and the people you meet on the way.

Jig Doll is the culmination of Hannah’s career thus far, allowing her to combine all of the disciplines for which she’s become known and take them to exciting new places. Much more than a concert, Jig Doll features newly-composed music in a magical setting woven around percussive dance.

Jig Doll is the perfect metaphor for the project: combining music, dance and percussion, wooden dancing dolls have been popular for at least two centuries throughout the UK and Ireland. Coming to the UK from Italy and France, they became part of British traditional culture. Often used to add visual interest to music gatherings, they were also incorporated regularly by travelling street musicians to attract children (and their parents) and to provide percussive accompaniment.

‘Hannah is an incredible musician – a beautiful singer, inventive accordionist and her dancing is out of this world.’ Jon Boden (Bellowhead)

‘An elegant, flowing transition between tunes, movement and song.’ fRoots Magazine
